What is Concrete Core Drilling?

Concrete core drilling is the process of drilling clean, circular holes in a concrete surface. It is a fast, accurate and clean way to create perfectly round openings through steel-reinforced concrete, pre-cast concrete, asphalt, masonry, metal, or stone. As this method does not use percussion, the structural integrity of the material you are cutting through remains intact. Fine Cut USA offers concrete core drilling as a basic service, among others.

So how in the world does concrete core drilling actually work? A core drill is a hollow, cylindrical drill that is used to make holes through a surface. It is made of metal, and the drill tips are usually coated with either diamond or carbide. The main difference between a core drill and other concrete cutting tools is that a core drill will extract a sample from the material. The size, power, and features of a core drill can vary, depending on what it will be used for. The concrete core drill is mounted on the rotating part of a concrete core-drilling machine, then secured to the surface of the material needed. As the shaft rotates, it drills into the surface removing a core of concrete or whichever other material is being drilled. This process provides a column of sediment, as well as a perfectly round hole in the material.

With the growing construction industry in America due to the growing population, concrete core drilling providers everywhere are impacted. Concrete core drilling has been required for application in many new construction projects in Kansas City. Some companies may not know that concrete core drilling can save them time and money by retrofitting a structure as opposed to creating a new one. Handy contractors that are good with money are repurposing old warehouses and buildings for use as loft apartments, small retail businesses, and restaurants. They need concrete core drilling to create openings for HVAC, electrical wiring, and even plumbing, as it is the most effective way.
